I follow.

My main point, which I probably didn't state clearly, was that there are some programs out there that resemble HIT, or or not too far off from HIT, but that are not often viewed as being in the HIT family tree.

If we put the Reeve's beginner up with one working set and didn't attribute it to Reeve's, but instead called it a HIT workout and added failure, a lot of people wouldn't take it seriously because of the HIT Jedi hatred.

Referring to Fazc's post...some forms of HIT are exactly the same as a volume workout with diminishing reps and increased weight.
